I have to agree that considering this all one paragraph is a stretch of grammatical rules, but I'll accept it for the sake of the joke. Well written and entertaining.

Were I your Composition teacher, though, I'd have to deduct 5 points from your score for wall-o-text. ;-)

That Sir was a good read it sounds too much like a scumbag lawyer's (or politician's ) dream, and it warns of how AI programs still need human oversight.

Thank You for the entertainment

> 1741 words later, I had the longest paragraph I’d ever written.

That's because it should have been broken up into at least 10.  Wall of text is bad.  Having said that, I think this is my new Lorem Ipsum.

You mean you're not using the hilarious and fouth mothed Samuel L. Ipsum?!

In case there is any doubt I love the story. And yes it could only happen in the USA (U Sue All ?). You could have thrown in a world war over this fund as well.

Wow! I was wondering why you got so much space on this site. Now I see why.

You know what helps in writing? Authors knowing how to use paragraphs. Also, what does this have to do with anything PC-related?

The joke is that the paragraph starts with "The short version:"

You know what makes up constructive criticism? Reading the first few sentences ("the longest paragraph I have ever written"). Being capable of reading a few thousand words. Also, how is the power of software entities in the future not PC-related? Have you completely missed all the other Future Tense articles?

What are you editors smoking in the lab these days? I don't see a MaxPC related shred in any of the story.

Sounds like the American Justice System.

So is this where we see how the machines rise up and subjugate humanity to chambers to live out an alternate reality? Not knocking your story (quite entertaining), it just makes me think if John Grisham meets the Animatrix

If you think this one was too long to read...wait till you see what I have to say next month.  

Seriously, though, if your attention span can't handle 1741 words, you really need to cut back on the Red Bull.

Fictional tale of an old man who wrote a computer program to play the stock market with one dollar after he died. The program ended up making billions and totaled the US legal system with thousands of lawsuits over who should own the money. The government kept freezing the money to prevent economic shockwaves.
